Ubuntu – Add “run in terminal” option in Nautilus actions configuration tool

command lineconfigurationnautilus-actionstools

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 and Nautilus Actions Configuration Tool 3.1.4. When ever I select the option 'run in terminal' in execution tab…it doesn't work. The comand i'm running shows a progress bar which is not visible using any other option. How can I fix this?

In nautilus-actions tool, go to Edit > Preferences > Runtime Execution. In the "command pattern" field, enter: gnome-terminal -x sh -c COMMAND

Then your commands/scripts will execute in the terminal just fine. Hope this helps someone!
